Reviewed by Deepak Menon for Readers' Favorite

"Makai Queen", a dream vision experienced by the heroine of the story, Tessa, from a mystery ship on the high seas, is the prelude to a startling future, very difficult to envisage. The story starts with a very ordinary scene of Tessa on a beach, noticing what looks like a body on the beach. The book's Christian undercurrent of mercy and compassion shows itself immediately as Tessa rushes to help the stranger, finds him alive, and then finds herself in great danger, and before she can literally blink an eye, she finds herself rescued by the stranger to a fantastical land. From this point the plot, a fast-paced adventure, is racy and zips past different scenarios which emerge in quick succession, like an express train.

There are an amazing succession of gripping twists and turns in the tale. More and more fantastical events occur, each with its fair complement of many of the creatures we see when we go to an aquarium, but endowed with their own unique telepathic powers of communication. Tessa finds herself escaping from the underwater cavern where the stranger had taken her and has many adventures and battles before joined by her sister. They see amazing turtles, electric eels, and fight sharks including a prehistoric shark, live what were hitherto thought to be merely legends of the Hawaiian Islands. Eventually, Tessa meets her unimaginable destiny. Because of the clarity of expression and expertise with which the story has been woven I rate this as an excellent book.

Makai Queen was one of those great reads that you start, and just don't want to put down. The story has it all, action, adventure, love, and a few surprising twists. Not only is it an exciting read, the message of the book is profound, relatable and inspirational. It is written by a Christian psychologist, whose kind and confident voice come through as encouragement to anyone who is, or ever has, searched for the purpose of their life. Definitely recommend it!
